Now the Merlot fruit is in the press and the morning light shines through the wine as it leaves the press on it’s journey to those fabulous barrels. They now will begin the long doze there for 18-20months. Can you possibly stand the wait?

Check the color of the Rua 2011 Merlot as it starts it’s journey to the press -well this free run juice ain’t gonna need any pressing! Juicy Juicy goodness in a vintage when folks were really concerned about ripening.
